      A better understanding of the regional soil development in this coastal plain may help elucidate some of the recent geological and climatic history. Furthermore, this study is improving our understanding of the regional distribution and relationships between the Hattiesburg and Citronelle Formations and the Quaternary alluvium. Wetumpka impact crater is an unusual-looking geological feature that sits astride the boundary between Alabama=s Gulf coastal plain (a low-relief terrain covering the southern half of the state) and Appalachian piedmont (a moderate-relief terrain covering a significant part of central Alabama). Wetumpka has an unusual origin in that the point. David King Geosciences Professor of Geology. particularly in the Gulf Coastal plain and in Belize.

Coastal Plain is the youngest of Georgia's geologic provinces, making up almost half the state's surface province begins at the fall line, which runs from Augusta through Macon to Columbus, and extends eastward all the way to the modern Georgia coast and southward to the Florida state line.

The Coastal Plain is composed of undeformed sedimentary. Coastal sedimentary deposits of the Atlantic Coastal Plain of the southeastern U.S.

(in yellow), the areas of focus for Heavy-Mineral Sand Resources in the southeastern U.S. project. These sediments are the deposits of shoreline environments that progressed across the southeastern U.S. from the Late Cretaceous period to the present coast. But the story of Georgia's geology is not just about the past.

Georgia is rich in such geological resources as marble, granite, and kaolin; production of these resources accounts for a large proportion of Georgia's addition, the geological beauties of rock, river, and mountain provide the attractions that annually draw thousands of tourists to Georgia's state.

The report presents an analysis of the hydrogeology of the clastic Cretaceous Coastal Plain aquifers in parts of eastern Mississippi and western Alabama. This report provides descriptions of (1) the hydrogeologic framework and associated ground-water flow system and (2) a calibrated digital computer model capable of assessing the effects of.

The East Gulf Coastal Plain is the largest section of the state, roughly spanning the southern third of Alabama and arcing northwest to gradually parallel the Mississippi state line for a significant distance. The Coastal Plain, with its abundance of porous sandy soils and gentle topography, furnishes ideal conditions for pine-dominated habitats.

The Gulf Coastal Plain occupies ∼60% of the exposed surface geology in Alabama. Coastal Plain sediments consist of Cretaceous, Tertiary, and Holocene sediments overlain by Quaternary stream deposits (as shown or described in Osborne et al., ; Raymond et al., ; Mancini et al., ).

Coastal Plain sediments include semiconsolidated Cited by: 5. This review of Alabama lignite deposits is a part of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Coal Resource Assessment (NCRA) of the Gulf Coast region (see Ruppert et al., ; Dennen, ; and other chapters of this publication).Because lignite is not currently mined in Alabama, a detailed assessment of the state was not made, and only a review is presented in this : Claire E.

Aubourg. A coastal plain is a flat, low-lying piece of land next to the ocean. Coastal plains are separated from the rest of the interior by nearby landforms, such as mountains. In western South America, a large coastal plain lies between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean.

In the United States, coastal plains can be found along the Atlantic. Applin, E. R., and Applin, P. L.,Logs of selected wells in the Coastal Plains of Georgia: Georgia Geological Survey Bulle p.

Heavy rainfall occurred across South Carolina during October 1–5,as a result of an upper atmospheric low-pressure system that funneled tropical moisture from Hurricane Joaquin into the State. The storm caused major flooding from the central to the coastal areas of South Carolina.
